This post is taking a while, I keep mulling over whether or not I can think of some proper puns. Maybe I just need to man up

Hyvät herrat,
ehkä olette väärinkäyttänyt Hylkeenpyytäjän Lakkiasi?
Jäkälätyttö Siviä löysi yhden aikaisin aamulla
Tove Janssonin parkour-kompleksista.
Se oli vieressä naisen Tykkimyssy.
Jos haluat lunastaa tämän tuotteen,
napsauta vain vastaanotossa ja pidä huomaamaton
sana ison Päivikin kanssa.
Hän huolehtii siitä erityisessä kaapissaan yhdessä
monien muiden vaatteiden,
soittimien ja retkeilyvarusteiden kanssa.
Jos haluat poistaa tahrat ennen Hylkeenpyytäjän Lakin viemistä kotiin,
pyydä isolta P: ltä lainaa hänen Cillit Bang -suihketta ja brillo ™ -tyynyä.

Gentlemen,
perhaps you have mislaid your Hylkeenpyytäjän Lakki ?
Big Siviä the lichen girl found one early this morning
in the Tove Jansson parkour complex.
It was next to a lady's Tykkimyssy.
If you wish to claim this item just pop along to reception
and have a discreet word with big Päivikki.
She is looking after it in her special cupboard,
along with many other garments,
musical instruments and camping equipment.
If you would like to remove the stains
before taking your Hylkeenpyytäjän Lakki home,
just ask big P for a lend of her Cillit Bang spray and brillo™ pad.

Hyvät herrat,
pidämme huomenna illalla vuosittaisen
hyväntekeväisyystapahtumamme porojen laitoksessa.
Tänä vuonna tuotot menevät Check Fraudsters In Needille.
Heidän liiketoimintansa on kärsinyt suuresti lukituksen aikana.
Avullasi he voivat palautua takaisin.
Jos haluat tarkkailla stimulaatiota huomaamattomalta etäisyydeltä,
napsauta vain vastaanottoon ja sana iso Lyyli.
Hänellä on valikoima sotilaallisia optisia laitteita vuokrattavana.
Puna-armeija jätti heidät talvisodan jälkeen,
mukaan lukien teleskoopit, kiikarit ja muut.

Gentlemen,
tomorrow evening we shall be holding our annual charity twerkathon in the reindeer paddock.
This year the proceeds will go to Cheque Fraudsters In Need.
Their businesses have suffered greatly during lockdown.
With your help they can bounce back.
If you would like to observe the stimulation performance
from a discreet distance just pop along to reception
and have a word with big Lyyli.
She has a selection of military grade optical devices for hire.
They were left behind by the Red Army after the Winter War,
and include telescopes, binoculars and that.

Hyvät herrat,
älä pelaa hölmöjä vastaanottovirkailijoiden kanssa,
kun he nukahtavat raskaan lounaan jälkeen.
Jäkälänpalojen heiluttaminen suuhun on sekä
epäkunnioittavaa että mahdollisesti vaarallista.
Monet naiset ovat allergisia jäkälälle.
He eivät ole poroja.
Myös jäkälän pala voi estää nielun
tai henkitorven tuhoisilla tuloksilla.
Hanki elämä, jota käpylen pureskelijat.

Gentlemen,
please do not play foolish games with the reception ladies
when they doze off after a heavy lunch.
Flicking pieces of lichen into their mouths
is both disrespectful and potentially dangerous.
Many ladies are allergic to lichen.
They are not reindeer.
Also a piece of lichen could obstruct
the pharynx or trachea with devastating results.
Get a life you pinecone chewers.

Hyvät herrat,
järjestämme huomenna illalla ennen hyväntekeväisyyden
twerkatonia huutokaupan lahjoitetuista esineistä.
Tuotot menevät Check Fraudsters In Needille.
Heidän yrityksensä ovat melkein romahtaneet lukituksen aikana,
mutta sinun avullasi he voivat palata takaisin.
Etsimme edelleen tuotteita, jotka sisällytetään myyntiin.
Erityisesti:

Harakka-vuotuiset vuosina 1970--1973
Avaamattomat adventtikalenterit vuosille 1988 ja 1995
Koko 43 rullaluistimet
Muistomerkit Latviasta, mukana Soul Singers
Dell-pöytätietokoneet, joissa on Windows Vista
Puhallettavat mallit Australian naispuolisista poptähdistä

Pahoittelemme seuraavien tuotteiden hylkäämistä:

Postikortit, joissa on kuvia Lute-soittimista
Espanjan litografien elämäkerrat
Nuo siniset tanskalaiset keksitölkit
Lohi lentää
Jättikynät ja / tai kynänteroittimet

Gentlemen, tomorrow evening
before the charity twerkathon
we shall be holding an auction of donated items.
The proceeds will go to Cheque Fraudsters In Need.

We are still looking for items to include in the sale.

Especially:

Magpie Annuals from 1970 to 1973
Unopened Advent Calendars for 1988 and 1995
Size 43 roller skates
Commemorative stamps from Latvia featuring Soul Singers
Dell Desktop computers with Windows Vista
Inflatable models of Australian female pop stars

We regret that the following items will be refused:

Postcards with images of Lute players
Biographies of Spanish lithographers
Those blue tins of biscuits from Denmark
Salmon flies
Giant pencils and/or pencil sharpeners

Uru aware of these islands ? Be sure to Reed about the island construction. You can get there from Puno on Lake Titicaca. I was going to make a joke about Puno but have forgotten the punchline (some Spanish needed for this one).

A truly fascinating place which I visited a few years ago.
